WHO WE ARE
The first Bahamian student attended the United World College of the Atlantic in 1971. Since then, over 90 outstanding Bahamian students have graduated from United World Colleges in 5 different continents.
WHAT WE DO
The UWC Bahamian National Committee consists of UWC Alumni and volunteers dedicated to providing as many Bahamian high-school students as possible with a transformational UWC education. UWC students are selected from within their own countries as Ambassadors of their Country. Selection is based on merit and irrespective of their ability to pay; as such, the UWC Bahamian National Committee’s most significant challenge is funding. As most UWC graduates seek to apply their commitment to positive social change throughout their lives, we are proud that a UWC education can, and often does, benefit whole communities, not just the individual who received the scholarship.
